Elda Pavan (1918-1998) began her profession as a weaver in San Martino di Lupari in the early 1940s. She learned the basics from Angela, a friend of Abbazia Pisani. When Elda married Gino Cecchele she set up a workshop all for herself and interrupted her collaboration with Angela. However, she was not satisfied with the production of linen and home textiles and aspired with strong determination to produce something more creative and original, linked to the world of fashion. Elda demonstrated a profound chromatic sensitivity and combined colors inspired by the world around her. In 1947 Elda Cecchele registered her business, under the name “Elda Cecchele”. The trademark, registered in 1965, is “Cecchele” In the 50s she began the most fruitful period of her artistic life, in which she worked above all in the clothing sector, and she began to collaborate with high fashion personalities: Salvatore Ferragamo, owner of the well-established shoe factory, the Frattegiani Brothers, another well-known company operating in the field of accessories, Jole Veneziani and Franco Bertoli, leading exponents respectively of the Haute Couture and Boutique Fashion. From archival documents it emerges that in the city of Venice she supplied fabrics to two manufacturers of handbags. The first is the Vogini company, which produced and sold bags, suitcases and other quality accessories; the shop, located in Piazza San Marco, was also the first point of sale of the new company "Roberta" by Giuliana Camerino, which was founded a few years before in the city. Elda soon established commercial relations with Giuliana, owner of the company, and the collaboration lasted until 1968. In the same city of Venice, the laboratory also began to supply fabrics for clothing to the company "Creazioni Franca", directed by Franca Polacco, with a collaborative relationship that would last a total of twelve years and which gave rise to a unique production of fabrics for originality and elegance. In 1963 the textile company moved to Galliera Veneta where she was able to enjoy larger spaces. Here she worked until 1988, when she retires due to illness. When the weaver retired from working life for health reasons, the business continued for a short time, led by her daughter Mariangela. In the following years everything remained unchanged in the laboratory, nothing was moved until 2005, when the recovery of the textile and paper material began.
